Default Yes L43 Dean, it IS possible!

Spied in Boulder. Snapped some photos and left a note. No call or email yet, but fingers crossed. Did not have a decent camera and cell phone photos are terrible to see what was going on. But didn't seem like he needed a sub frame, bed rail adapters or anything. The 'Nest was sitting right on the bed rails as far as I could see. Very clean installation, in fact it was a very clean 'Nest.

I'll tell you too, that was one l-o-n-g truck. Double cab and 6' bed, those things need to be articulated with an aft driver. Your truck and 'Nest could be camped in a different area codes.

Yeah, those are long. I like the shortbed version, got a test drive in one not too long ago. It was nice. The 6' bed on a double cab is just too long for me.

Honestly, for 2 people, I think an access cab is the perfect ride. The 2nd gens have suicide rear doors, unlike the first gen, so you can easily stick a fridge on a slide back there (or a cooler if you are like me). Plus, the doors just make access easier.

So the front end change in 2001 wasn't a gen change I guess...

No, as the truck still had the same frame and drivetrain, and the only real change was the grill headlights and bumper. the rest of the cab is the same. First Gens, as far as I know, are 96-04, and 2nd gens are 05-13+

They just did another front end lift on the 12's, which, IMO, is really sexy.

First gen is 1995 to 2004, second gen is 2005 to current. I guess 2013 or 2014 will be the last year for the current Tacoma, though. Speculation (probably wishful) is the Tacoma will converge again with the Hilux, more or less. If Toyota extends the current Tacoma platform an extra year or two that is a good sign. Worldwide Toyota runs a Hilux design for roughly 9 years, it changed in 1997 and 2006. The Tacoma was running a year or two ahead, so if they hold over the current platform beyond 9ish years it could mean they want the two truck product cycles to overlap again.

Toyota does cosmetic changes on the trucks periodically, in the case of the 3rd gen Pickup the body style ran 1989 to 1991 and then 1992 to 1995. When they do a model revision they do change things, like in 1992 the grill changed. They also added electronic speedometer and changed a few interior pieces. But mostly the mechanicals don't change and are largely interchangeable.

In the Tacoma they were less distinct, they seemed to do more rolling changes. Some mechanicals seemed to change in 1997, cosmetics changed in 1998 to flush headlights but 1999 had changes to the air box. The last cosmetic generation was 2001 to 2004, with the bumped hood and stuff.

That would be cool if they also introduced D4D Hiluxes/Tacomas to the U.S.

Sounds like Jeep is going to give it a go again with turbodiesels in the Grand Cherokee, so we'll see what happens.
